Caravan Tours used the resort for our stay. It was a great choice. The hotel is lovely, food great and the nocturnal safari and meet and greet with the sloths super. Our outstanding Caravan Tour Director, Yani, made sure we were informed of all the amenities the Resort offered making our experience top class.Thanks Ganboa Resort , Caravan and Yani... More

We enjoyed a buffet at the "Los Lagaritos". We timed it poorly and arrived just after two coaches at 12h15. This made no difference to the quality of service or standard of food,both very good indeed!The venue is on the tranquil Chagres river and in the not too far distance the canal and the large ships.We will return....

A very impressive resort with many features. A huge swimming pool to relax in. A large property to walk around in safely. Great dining rooms. Rooms have a great view. Sometimes, critters are about, and may even visit your room or the deck (no, not awful bugs!). After all, you're in a rainforest. A bit of a hassle to get... More

The setting is just five minutes from the Gamboa dock where we arrived by partial canal transit, is special. The four story lobby with spectacular views of the Chagras River Valley demands a cool drink with time to enjoy the view. I'm so glad we didn't try this as a day trip from Panama City. Recommend two days here--one with... More

The hotel is close to the Panama canal and there are several tours that can be booked from the hotel. The night drive is free and we saw parrots, sloths, a baby crocodile. The hotel has a very large pool with comfortable beds and overlooks the river. There lots of trails that you can walk on directly from the hotel... More

Whether you wish to escape city life or desire a variety of activities in a beautiful place, the Gamboa Rainforest Resort in Panama is a wise choice. The resort offers a number of activities from boating outings to ego-tram rides through the treetops, learning from expert guides about the local flora and fauna. Did we see any howler monkeys? No.... More

This is a delightful location and the hotel rooms are clean and comfortable. We were there as part of a Panama tour and I expected to find many birds on the grounds. Bingo! Very good birding from the hotel balcony. Others on our tour elected to pay $85 for a birding trip to Pipeline Road. As described by others, it... More
